Many people go about collecting Art Deco rings at a leisurely pace, but others must have every ring they fall in love with immediately — such are the inescapable passions of life. The colors, the geometric shapes, the ornate yet rigorously arranged lines, everything coming together in such striking and bold manifestations can prove too much. The appeal and allure of Art Deco rings, and all its jewellery in general, is undeniable.
Many replicas of that period’s jewellery are made today, but for truly committed lovers of the school, nothing comes close to replicating the original. For these folks, finding and waiting out estate jewellery sales is nothing to regret. Neither is making early-morning rounds at vintage and antique shops. Increasingly, however, these tireless seekers of beauty that gleams and that can be worn hanging from a lapel, or strung around an impeccably prettied wrist, are beginning their daily or weekly quests online.
Sellers of antique and vintage articles feel no compunction about leaving the pre-Internet days behind. Not only are they reaching out to more customers online, they are also finding pieces there themselves for future sales. Connoisseurs of vintage jewellery can find out about current prices and get fresh inspiration from the finds of others. Although online sellers are mostly known for the deep discounts they’re capable of giving, if you’re looking for quality don’t be discouraged. High-quality pieces can be found online just as easily as they can in the physical world. Moreover, high-resolution pictures are available, along with weight and provenance details.
